February 2017 Newsletter: HPV No More and Referral Bonus Offer



Believe it or not, one of the most challenging tasks I face each month is the monthly newsletter. I’ve been doing the newsletter since 2010, now over six years. The challenge to keep it fresh, interesting, and timely; and at the same time not too controversial.  Upon completion it is also one of my most rewarding activities of the month.  I receive many positive comments from clients, other readers, and particularly Sofia from Argentina (my mother-in-law). 

Over the past few years there has been a simultaneous change in the growth and scope of my practice. Fewer and fewer people come to me with the question about what to eat. When I started in the nutrition business over 10 years ago very few people knew what Paleo meant, let alone heard of a Paleo Diet. People were still afraid of butter and fat. Today bone broth, protein smoothies, full fat, grass fed beef are pretty much mainstream. There are countless books and websites to learn and purchase. 

Yet, my practice continues to grow.  It has evolved into customized nutrition programs for my clients. Utilizing client symptom information, muscle testing and blood testing we are able to determine what is causing stress and how to remedy it. Most people, even if they have transitioned to a healthy diet, still have nutritional deficiencies or toxins that are producing symptoms in their bodies. Or in other cases, they have some mysterious, unresolved health issue that either their doctor tells them “it is in your head”, or its “normal”, or will not resolve.

My business is built on referrals and I thank you all for helping my business grow. Below I highlight a recent case that I think you’ll find interesting.

With the New Year underway this is the time people start to take a close look at their health. If you have benefited from working with me, and you have relatives, friends, or acquaintances that you feel could be helped by a nutritional consult, now is the time to reach out to them. And, if you reach out to them, I’ll reach out to you. For each referral you will get a $25 off voucher to use on supplements or consultation time.

HPV No More
Here’s the case of someone who was referred to me last April. She was told she was deficient in minerals. That was true, but she also was suffering from HPV. We used muscle testing to identify which specific supplements would help her and here’s where we are now: 

“I have tested positive for the HPV virus since 2012. My strain of HPV was persistent and I underwent two LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) procedures to remove abnormal cells.  I started working with Rosen Wellness on April 28th of 2016, and in January of 2017 I learned that I no longer tested positive for the HPV virus. I believe this is due to the support I received through Rosen Wellness and Bernie Rosen.”

Her doctors were shocked. They had never seen this happen before. What is interesting to me is how they react. They do not ask her for more information on what she did. Perhaps another patient could benefit from the knowledge. Rather, they just told her to keep doing it! You would think that this might be a learning opportunity, but unfortunately that just does not happen.

January 2017 Newsletter: Start the Year with a Cleanse Plus: Purify the Body, Mind, and Soul and begin a Smart Exercise Program



Wow! That’s a long title for the newsletter, but it certainly is a great way to start the New Year!

If you’re like me (yes, me too!) It is time to get back on track from the Holidays. Drop those few extra pounds and cleanse the body with the 21 Day Purification Program. Susana and I will be starting it (January 14) upon our return from vacation and we’d like you to join us. For those who do, I have a very special offer – in fact the best incentive I’ve ever offered!  See below for the details.

Not sure if you need to do the cleanse or not? Well, take this quick questionnaire to see: http://brwellness.com/docs/toxicity_questionnaire.pdf

Above, I also mentioned purifying the mind and soul, and starting a smart exercise program.  I’ve mentioned these two books in the past and if you haven’t had a chance yet to review them, I strongly recommend it!  They are: Body by Science by Doug McGuff, MD and John Little and The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson.  I’ll tell you more about them below.

But for those who can’t wait here’s a quick summary.
1.      Do the 21 Day Purification Program and take advantage of this great offer!
2.      Read the book Body by Science to learn how exercise impacts the body.
3.      Read the book The Emotion Code to learn how to “release your trapped emotions for abundant health, love and happiness.” (That’s on the book’s cover.)

Of course if you do not have time to read the books, no problem as you can review my past blogs that summarize the books.

Cleanse Special Offer
I have a special offer this month for the Standard Process Purification Program. It is such a great offer, that I can’t even mention it here. But, I’ll tell you this – it is the largest incentive I have ever offered.  
Please call or e-mail if you are interested, so I can tell you the price and we can arrange for you to pick up your kit!

Body by Science
In the past I’ve written a few articles about exercise. I’ve told you about PACE and PACE Express from Dr. Sears, BurstFit by Dr. Axe, and the Xiser stepper to name a few. All of these techniques are similar in they promote what is called “burst training” or “sprint training” and now “HIT” (high intensity training). All work off a similar premise – the human body was not designed to run a marathon and the average person does not have to spend hours upon hours exercising to get in shape.
In fact, they even boldly state that being fit is not necessarily the same as being healthy and that many people over-exercise which has negative impacts on their health. This has been my experience with many of my clients. They come to me and say, “I don’t get it. I work out every day with my trainer and I keep gaining weight.” 

Body by Science explains all the whys behind this. It provides the research and the science behind how exercise impacts the body. Here’s a link to the web site: http://www.bodybyscience.net/home.html/. 

There are videos, blogs, and other helpful information. I highly recommend it.
Here’s the links to my blog articles summarizing the book:
Getting Started With Body by Science:  http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=27
Exercise and Hormones: Fat Burning (Yes) and Fat Storing (oh no!): http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=21
It’s In Your Genes: Ten Factors That Influence Exercise Outcomes: http://brwellness.com/nutrition-news/?p=17

The Emotion Code
As many of you are aware, there is more to the body than just the pure physical – there is the emotional and the spiritual as well. True health is not only a healthy body, but also a healthy mind and soul. There is a wide source of literature and studies supporting the role of emotion in our health. It is the basis for a variety of “energetic medicine” type practices. 

The Emotion Code focuses on Dr. Bradley Nelson’s work with his chiropractic patients not only on their physical level, but on their emotional (and spiritual) level as well. He has found how emotions create the physical symptoms of his patients and by clearing the emotions the patient returns to health.
The book explains it all and gives the reader the tools to release their trapped emotions. Here’s a link to his website for more information. Warning – he’s selling all kinds of stuff which is usually a red flag for me, but all you really need is the book – so if you’re interested just start there before you go crazy buying stuff!! 

And, over the next few months I’ll offer more insight in the newsletters as well. Here’s the link: http://www.healerslibrary.com/

Happy New Year! My best wishes to you, your family, and your loved ones for a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!

December 2016 Newsletter: In Loving Memory of Leo Rosen



This month’s newsletter is late and brief due to the passing of my Father last week. He lived a good and long life, just three months short of his 92nd birthday. From the Model T to the I-Phone he was certainly a member of what is now known as “The Greatest Generation.” He was a loving father, grandfather, and husband; successful attorney, World War II navy veteran, and polio survivor. We will all miss him dearly.

Interestingly enough, he almost died last March after getting a bacterial infection in the hospital. So I’ve decided to feature an article below about the dangers of bacteria in the hospital. He died of kidney failure, my belief from all the medications he was on during that battle and throughout the later years of his life. So, I’m also featuring an article on that subject.

I will be out of the office from December 30 until January 12 of next year. I will send another reminder in a few weeks, but please plan ahead for your supplement needs. I will be out of the country, so not able to get things to you.


Hospital Acquired Infections
Here are several articles from Dr. Mercola covering this issue in depth. What can you do about it? Besides eating right and taking care of yourself to avoid the hospital I generally recommend to take lots of probiotics while in the hospital and upon release.

One in 25 patients end up with hospital acquired infections. Here’s the article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/04/09/hospital-acquired-infections.aspx

This hospital mistake kills 60,000 people per year. Here’s the article:


And one more, why hospital beds should have danger signs on them. Here’s the article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/10/26/hospital-infections.aspx



Over use of Medications and Kidney Failure
Ever wonder why all the drug advertisements warn you about your kidneys?


Regular use of aspirin and Tylenol linked to kidney disease. Here’s the article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2002/01/05/aspirin-part-four.aspx

Certain types of antibiotics can cause kidney failure: Here’s the article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/10/20/fluoroquinolones-side-effects.aspx

November 2016 Newsletter: My Most Compliant Client – Likes His Supplements So Much He Even Begs for Them!



Yes, I’m talking about our dog Barry! Dogs are people too! And just like humans many of them suffer from nutritional deficiencies and ultimately disease. Just last year I read an article in Barron’s about the high profitability and growth of the drug manufacturer Pfizer’s veterinary product business stating approximately 70% of US pets are on at least one medication! Most of our pets are eating highly processed cereal based foods. In short they’re on the same bad diets as their owners, so wind up with the same diseases.

I’ve written in the past about Standard Process’ veterinary product line and even linked to a Veterinarian who advocates purification programs for animals. Well, recently I took it a step further and had Barry muscle tested by Sue Howell, a local Standard Process employee. Sue was trained in muscle testing by my mentor Dr. Joe Teff, so she used a similar technique. 

Barry is a bit overweight, so she recommended a new diet and some supplements to address his nutritional deficiencies. We started with the supplements and he loves them! Now, every time I go into the kitchen where I keep his supplements he comes in looking for more. And as you can see by the video linked here he devours them quickly!  To enjoy the video of Barry enjoying his supplements click here and just scroll down a bit on the page and you’ll see it: https://www.facebook.com/Rosen-Wellness-LLC-112725808745/

We’ve started with the supplements and Barry’s diet is next to change in a few weeks. I’ll keep you updated on his progress!

Here’s a Happy Compliant Human!
Here’s an email I received a few weeks ago:
“Hi Bernie –
I just want to say – wow – whatever we switched to has me feeling great.  I have energy, am sleeping well and am actually starting to drop a pound or two.  Soy – no problem, peppers – fine, wheat – find.  Dairy – that is a toughy.  I am still nibbling on a bit of white cheese but will try and cut that out.
 Yeah – another layer of the onion is peeling away.”

The Cold and Flu Season Awaits
While we’re having a record breaking warm day today here in Wisconsin we all know what is just around the corner. With the colder weather comes the cold and flu season. As I’ve mentioned previously I recommend that all clients have on hand Congaplex Chewable and Andrographis Complex by Standard Process - a great way to boost your immune system when you feel something coming on. Take 1-2 Congaplex every hour and 1 Andrographis Complex every 4 hours you’re awake and usually in a day or two you’re feeling fine.
